Anyone else notice a trend of naming homes with just a letter? We’ve had a few in the past, like a Villa G, House R, 4S House, Maison P+C and more. We wonder if they stand for anything interesting? Like the ‘P’ in Villa P, could it be for punctual? — Continue reading

Interiors: The SuperGroup

We’d say we have a healthy obsession with what we’d call “future decor.” In other words, we’re always daydreaming about what homes, offices and businesses might look like in the future.

DIY: Modern barn door for $40

How we missed this when it first appeared on Apartment Therapy back in February is a mystery, but what’s not a mystery is why anyone would want this in their home: modern sliding/barn doors are an awesome alternative to regular doors-in-a-frame or even just casement openings; they add an instant — Continue reading

Live Modern: Maison P+C

What does a home that looks good at every angle look like? Why, this house, called Maison P + C. If you guessed by the title that it’s a French home, you’d be right. Located in Indre, France, to be precise. But this French home doesn’t have any hints at — Continue reading

Interiors: L Residence

As  a general rule, we’re not super into blue in an interior space. That’s a bit harsh…we mean, there are lots of ways in which blue can totally make a space rock, but you really need to have a cool hue. This home, the L Residence, totally gets blue right. — Continue reading

Skypak is the name of a design brand from Cologne, Germany. They refine airplane trolleys to make them usable in home, business and office settings. We have to admit, their compact design and focus on efficiency do make them pretty clever, and they’ve got a nice industrial feel to them.

Live Modern: The River House

Most of the time when people celebrate the joys of living near water, they’re talking about oceans or maybe some fancy lake. Rivers just don’t get the credit of being awesome that they deserve. But as someone who grew up near a river, let me tell you they have a — Continue reading

Live Modern: BBD House

Just loving this house! It’s such a perfect mix of old and new when you begin to examine its details. First to catch our eye are those lovely, rounded corners of the house.

Live Modern: Oblio House

Just loving the Southwestern vibe to this house, Oblio House. Located in Cedar Crest, New Mexico, you can really sense this architecture’s connection to its surrounding land, and colors, volumes, shapes and more are lifted from the landscape in a way that is subtle, yet haunting.

It’s a barn! No, it’s a house! No–it’s a barn house! Love those mixed, multi-use spaces that work for the people who will be living and working in the spaces. Sometime you have to think outside of the box (or barn, as it were) to design a space that will — Continue reading
